Time4aTimeLimit Interfaith Tent
JRS UK helps detainees at Harmondsworth, the largest detention centre in Europe. Join others on Saturday 5th July.
The UK is the only European country not to have a limit on how long someone can be kept in immigration detention. The result is an expensive, ineffective and unjust system that: wastes millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money, fails to achieve its goals and treats vulnerable people inhumanely, often causing physical and mental health problems.
We call on people of all faiths and none to gather near Harmondsworth Detention Centre – the biggest detention centre in Europe – to fast, pray, listen and raise our voice in solidarity with the strangers at our gates. It is time for the UK Government to realise this system is broken. It is time to treat all human beings with dignity. It is time for a time limit. Join us – all are welcome to this free event.

JRS UK Review of Work
We have just published our review of work to celebrate all our work over the last three years
'From hostility to hospitality' is the theme of the review which describes some of the challenges our refugee friends are facing and shows some of JRS's responses to accompany, serve and advocoate for them in what sometimes seems like an increasingly unfriendly environment. We share stories of what it means to be part of JRS and express our deep felt appreciation to friends and supporters, donors and partners for their continued encouragement and generosity.
